Missouri Valley Conference Head Coach of the Year – indoor and outdoor (2009)Coach Travis Geopfert takes you step-by-step through the process of identifying and correcting common mistakes in the javelin. Coach Geopfert pinpoints the errors an athlete may encounter and then provides drills and coaching points to correct the errors and improve technique.
Geopfert starts with one of the most overlooked areas of javelin training – flexibility. Geopfert shows you eight upper body flexibility drills to increase not only an athlete’s range of motion, but strength as well.
Moving to technique, you will see three of the most common ways to hold the javelin. Using a series of Jav Ball Routines, Coach Geopfert has his athletes demonstrate the correct way to throw the javelin and, in many cases, how to identify technique errors.
Essential runway technique is covered with a simple progression of approach drills. Focusing on perfecting simple and slower 3 to 5 step drills, Geopfert demonstrates Carries, Crossovers, and Penultimates before advancing to full speed approaches.
Geopfert uses simple concepts to show you how to get the most from your throws and how to eliminate the mistakes that cost your athletes distance.
